Josh’s passion for weather developed at a very early age. Experiencing severe thunderstorms and major snowstorms only sparked his interest even more. He enjoyed making hand-drawn forecasts of his own. By the time Josh was 12, he owned his first weather website and often posted forecasts for the Northeast US. At 13, he joined a now-popular weather page based in Southern PA, eventually parting ways in 2015.

Josh is now a senior in high school in Southern PA and the owner of Pennsylvania Weather Action, LLC.
